Taxi ranks

The council provides taxi ranks at key areas within Stevenage.

Ranks are located within 50m to 100m of the facility being served.  If this is not possible, seating is provided at the rank.

Ranks are so that passengers board or alight from the taxi onto the footway on the nearside of the vehicle. Ramps and steps should only be used for access and egress via the nearside passenger door.  Where taxi ranks are arranged on the offside of the road, a pickup and drop off point nearby on the opposite side is identified for wheelchair passengers.
